Grant's was trained by his father from a young age, to become a mercenary for him. Slade's methods were rigorous and impersonal, constantly belittling Grant for not living up to his high standards. Slade explained the concept of an "Achilles' heel" to Grant and this later becomes an inspiration for Grant to kill his father (presumably Grant is Slade's Achilles' heel.)
After Grant was presumed dead at the hands of the Midnighter, he surreptitiously manipulated Deathstroke by allying himself with the parents of one of Slade's victims, and sending a number of villains called Legacy to weaken the mercenary before facing him himself. When Grant did have the opportunity to kill Deathstroke, Grant hesitated, before simply walking away.
Growing up, Grant was abused emotionally and physically by Slade, eventually running away in his teenage years to escape his parents instability.
Grant was hired by H.I.V.E. to take out the Teen Titans back when the team was in its initial lineup. However, the genetic modifications H.I.V.E. made to him led to his heart giving out during the fight.
Years later, his father took up his sons's contract to avenge him and kill the Teen Titans.
